I have many aspects of an old man, but the most pronounced is my love for this odd cereal. After buying a few cheaper bags of Malt-O-Meal yesterday I decided to "treat" myself with a box of Grape-Nuts. How many other people under the age of 81 have ever said that? Anyways, as a food lover I realize that food is not only about taste, it's also about texture. And boy howdy do Grape-Nuts have a unique texture. It's like little pieces of granite, but if you let the milk soak in the correct about of time they've got an amazingly loud crunch when the flavor comes alive in your mouth. And it makes a wonderful warm breakfast on a cold winter morning...all you have to do is pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Or, if you're an old soul like myself and enjoy putting fruit in your cereal, then I highly recommend putting grapes in with your Grape-Nuts. The sweetness of the grapes compliments the cereal perfectly. Honey works well too, apparently.
So if you've never tried Grape-Nuts, or haven't had it in a while, please give it a go, for my sake. And if you don't like it I'll buy the rest of the box from you. Seriously. I'll just stock up on all the boxes you guys send me. David up there says it never goes bad, and I believe him.
